Hello my door seals on my SWB 1992 300GD have perished and could do with being replaced but MB want £170 each side, Does anyone know wether these can be sourced cheaper?

Regards, Jon S

Re: Door seals

Try a 'Search Website' here.  There have been recommendations of seal supplies.  Its a matter of spotting the right profile for the seal.

There is a link here:  http://gwoa.co.uk/node/3153

Re: Door seals
"Woolies" were super helpful for our 460. A Google search will find them. You can then talk to real, live, helpful human beings.

Re: Door seals

Assuming this is a 463 (1992) they are pretty specific

as they have a colour coded part (grey/black/cream) and are quite a bit different to the standard 460 ones

Nobody else does the 463 type

Used ones will all be no better than what you have

460 will probably fit the aperture but won't be correct for the car

I would break the piggy bank open and go for it...

Re: Door seals

Looks like you may be lucky although it won't feel it!

You must require black at £176 each plus vat?

The grey ones are £60 more each :0(

Re: Door seals

The other news is MB U.K. or Germany don't have any black ones in stock 

So expect 6-8 weeks if you order 

Shout I FB you hit a snag as some dealers might tell you that they're no longer available
